When the Stooges penned "I Wanna Be Your Dog," the group was trying to express the perfect pick-up line -- if you were a Detroit punk. As guitarist Ron Asheton explained, "The title came from you see some girl that you really liked, and what's the crudest but kind of polite thing you could say? 'Well, hey, baby, I wanna be your dog!' All the titles came from real-life slang." Further "Stooges slang" would appear on the 1970 LP Fun House, in the song "Down on the Street" (the phrase "o-mind") and as the title of the tune "TV Eye."
